What’s so special about Vann’s Free Shipping?

Free Ground Shipping

It’s also likely the delivery person you meet will be OUTSIDE your door when they do Vann’s Free Ground shipping.

Alright. It’s time to talk about an exciting topic. One of my favorite topics, in fact!

Vann’s shipping!

Wait… where’s everyone going? Come back!

Okay, so it doesn’t sound like the most interesting topic in the world, but getting your stuff from point A (our warehouses) to point B (your doorstep) is one of those key things that makes our “No Sales Tax”* online electronics and appliance store go round.

Plus, I want to show you how you can get more free shipping on your favorite items. Read on.

Free Shipping on MOST items over $49

If you’ve read our free shipping tag line there’s a pretty big elephant in the sentence. No, not an actual member of the Elephantidae family, but one figurative word that can cause discerning readers pause.


Let’s get it out of the way.

Vann’s offers free ground shipping on most (there it is again) orders over $49. Why is it only “most orders?” Mostly this is because after finding a magic lamp back in 1998, we accidentally wasted our wish on unlimited ice cream instead of free shipping rates. So, as it stands, we still have to pay to ship things.

Some things are more expensive than others to ship. This is especially true when we’re talking about large items like flat screen TVs and appliances like washers and dryers. Every once in awhile we’ll be able to work with one of our vendor partners to help you out on shipping (one of the perks of being an authorized dealer), but sometimes it just doesn’t happen.

Other items we just can’t afford it. In order to offer you a wide range of choices with no sales tax (*except in Kentucky, Indiana, and Nevada), we have to charge shipping outside the listed price.

So that’s the most. Now here’s the secret to getting more.

MORE Free Shipping

I recently picked up the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus from Vann’s. I say this not because it’s a great tablet, but because it made me realize something:

I don’t ever just buy one thing when I get new electronics.

Once it was in my hands, I realized I needed a case for it. And a screen protector. Oh, and a stylus might be pretty cool. Also I needed an extra charging cable to keep at work.

So what does this have to do with getting more free shipping? On almost all of that stuff, we offer free shipping.

Had I thought about all the items I needed and taken the time to consult with one of our product specialists, they may have been able to not only make me a great deal on everything I needed, but also done something about getting it to me free.

That’s just a tablet. For a TV you may need a mount, or that Blu-ray player, maybe an HDMI cable, and of course a good surge protector. Great speakers need a great receiver and you may as well upgrade that old speaker wire while you’re at it. Eyeing that Apple computer? Applecare offers some great phone support, and you can’t go wrong protecting your new retina display with a screenguard and case.

The list goes on. But when our product specialists can help you save on your favorite electronics, they may be able to extend our free shipping offer to things you didn’t think were possible.

So give them a call at 1-800-769-5668. You may be in for a pleasant surprise when it comes to getting more.
